The horrifying 26/11 Mumbai terror attack which left people brutally injured and killed, shocked the whole nation. Now the mastermind and Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi finally sentenced to 15-year prison which is termesd by a Pakistan court.
In connection with the terror-financing case, Lakhvi was arrested and was also involved in the horrifying terrorist attack on India’s financial capital 12 years ago which killed around 166 people and left so many people injured.
As quoted by the court to PTI- “The Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) Lahore convicted Lakhvi for the commission of offences of terrorism financing in a case registered by the CTD for 15 years under a different section of the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997.”
The report further stated that an arrest warrant was issued for the banned of Masood Azhar, Chief of Jaish-e-Mohammad and also on the terror financing charges. Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operations commander Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, one of the alleged masterminds of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, and was on Friday sentenced to 15 years in jail in a terror-financing case by an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan’s Lahore. He was on bail since 2015 in the Mumbai attacks case, was arrested by the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) of Punjab.
Even the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has kept on their watchlist and any failure to the action against the terror financiers would mean blacklisting of Pakistan by it leading to drying of finances for the country struggling to keep its national economy afloat.
